Placeholder Image
DARLINGTON - With the new school year quickly approaching, the Lafayette County Sheriff's Office and Lamers Bus Line are reminding motorists of a change in school bus laws. The change under Wisconsin Statutes Chapter Trans 300 went into effective Tuesday and applies to school buses built after Jan. 1, 2005 that are equipped with both amber and red warning lights. What to do when approaching a school bus displaying flashing lights: • When amber warning lights are activated, it is a caution that the bus is coming to a stop and will soon be activating its red warning lights.
